a essay on hell...
Ok Its not tech humor, and its a old one I found from years ago...

but too funny not to post it.

Now THIS is fxing FUNNY:

Logic rules again....

The following is an actual question given on a University of
professor shared it with colleagues, which is why we now have the pleasure
of enjoying it as well.

Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or
endothermic (absorbs heat)?

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's
Law, (gas cools off when it expands and heats up when it is
compressed) or some variant.

One student, however, wrote the following:

"First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing with
time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and
the rate at which they are leaving.

I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell,
it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving.

As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the
different religions that exist in the world today. Some of these
religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to
Hell.

Since there are more than one of these religions, and since people do
not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to
Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number
of souls in Hell to increase exponentially.

Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell.
Because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in
Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand as souls are added.

This gives two possibilities:

1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which
souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase
until all Hell breaks loose.

2. Of course, if Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the
increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until
Hell freezes over.

So which is it?

If we accept the postulate given to me by Ms. Teresa Banyan
during my Freshman year-- "...that it will be a cold day in Hell before I
sleep with you."-- and take into account the fact that I still have not
succeeded in having sexual relations with her, then #2 cannot be true; and
thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and will not freeze."

THIS STUDENT RECEIVED THE ONLY "A"

Nice, My Biology teacher gave us this last year.
